Three people are dead after their vehicle crashed head-on and caught on fire Thursday night in DeKalb County, officials said.
The two-vehicle collision occurred at the intersection of Wesley Chapel and Snapfinger roads around 9 p.m., according to DeKalb County Fire Rescue Capt. Jaeson Daniels. The impact caused one of the vehicles to combust, which led to the death of the three people inside, he said.
Their identities were not released.
The two people in the other vehicle suffered only minor injuries, Daniels said.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has reached out to DeKalb County police for more information.
